Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Matt Bevin is running against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

WASHINGTON — A Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Kentucky said that same-sex marriage could lead to a parent claiming marriage to his or her child to gain tax benefits and other privileges.

Louisville businessman Matt Bevin is challenging five-term Sen. Mitch McConnell in the May 20 GOP primary. Bevin said Wednesday that marriage should retain its traditional definition as being between a man and a woman.

Bevin told a Christian radio program hosted by Janet Mefferd: “If it’s all right to have same-sex marriages, why not define a marriage – because at the end of the day, a lot of this ends up being taxes and who can visit who in the hospital, and there’s other repercussions and things that come with this -so a person may want to define themselves as being married to one of their children so that they could then in fact pass on certain things to that child financially and otherwise.”

“Where do you draw the line?” he said. “And if, in fact, a person can arbitrarily draw it here, why not could someone else draw it arbitrarily draw it somewhere else?”

Bevin spokeswoman Rachel Semmel said Bevin was not connecting gay marriage with incest. She said he was speaking of questions such as “hospital visitations and benefits.”

McConnell is the Senate minority leader.

  148. Don’t they run these speeches by someone first?! Is there no one who says, “maybe you shouldn’t say that, you sound like a complete moron?!” Is the sheer panic of knowing they are fighting a losing battle causing them to say any & everything in an attempt to discourage? Honestly, I’m beginning to feel sorry for them. The panicked, hopeless stupidity is really very sad.

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:39pm
  149. Ok I live in ky. And while this jackass is unfortunately speaking on the behalf if our state, the news reporter made him look even worse and reworded what he said in the headline! I DONT AGREE WITH HIM AT ALL! He is ridiculous n should realize that hospital visitation isn’t dictated by marriage but rather by the patient… Anyway my point is the paper didn’t have to misconstrue what he said to make him look like an idiot, he did it all by himself with his real words. The paper should have used them instead of inferring he said something else.

  162. aaaaaaaaaaand the award of “biggest jackass” goes to this guy. way to think that parents are that desperate that they’ll be marrying their children off to get better taxes. news flash: the parents wouldn’t be the ones collecting the income. if they were, i’m sure we’d have a lot more kids marrying off their children- heterosexual or homosexual, it wouldn’t have mattered.

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:44pm
  187. It has nothing to do with any one thing, such as tax benefits! I’m disgusted….it’s about real marriage! We don’t just want a piece of paper, it should include everything that a heterosexual marriage should. Ughhh…

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:44pm

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:45pm
  194. With that type of logic maybe the US Congress should take a closer look at heterosexual marriages.

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:45pm

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:46pm
  200. I am normal, I am not gay, but as a human race, we must all agree, that our children is our future. That is the heart of all human race. We must not mingle with it, by no means. We can only Hope for it. No matter where we come from, we must hope, hope to God for the best. What ever we believe, must hope and hope that our dreams come true. That is only what we can hold on to: Hope… I Hope to God… whatever….”we must not as a human race, or belittle, our own thoughts, to even conceive the idea, unless it is lust, and dis-regard for human life, as we know it, and not caring for our fellow brother. We must not harm, but only Love our children. With that may be, our belief, our God, must strike us down, that we may hope if we betray our children with lust. If that were to happen, then we failed at life. We failed as a person, society, and any entity that could possibly be above that. At that point, we are no longer fit to be human. God save us all.

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:46pm
  201. With that in mind everyone, if it may had happened can be still accepted to the world, if wronged and wants man to accept his change.

  203. I swear to God. I was born in the United States 53 years ago and until I moved to Europe at the age of 30, I followed US politics quite closely as a student and then as a journalist. There were never, and I repeat never these kinds of pond-dwellers in politics back then. Maybe at the local level in rural Mississippi, but certainly not in the US Congress. I was a page in the US Senate for six months along the way, and there was no one even remotely comparable to Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio or any of the other nitwits. It all started with Clinton. The Republicans went crazy went Clinton was elected, got more crazy after he was reelected, went totally insane on the Monica thing. They kept those instincts dormant during the age of George Bush the Younger and Dumber. And then President Blackenstein got elected, and the Republicans turned into Republithugs. And the worst of it is that any single attempt at moderation in a present day congressional Republithug gets them a primary challenge from someone who is even more knuckle-dragging than they are. It boggles the mind and begs the imagination.

  209. The statement/question is just so stupid it doesnot deserve a response. There is a reason that arguments against gay marriage are so idiotic.

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:47pm
  212. Here’s your definition: marriage is between two consenting adults. Is that simple enough for you? Children can not give consent due to their age. And, hello, gay marriage is already in many states and countries, all of which do not have this going on. Grow up, you sound like an idiot.

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:47pm
  213. that sucks

    Posted on Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6:48pm
  218. The reason for marriage is to create kinship where there is none. Marrying your child would be redundant.

  232. WOW! Isn’t amazing who we let get into office. I’m telling you people pay attention who your local officias are & what they are about. So many people feel because the issue doesn’t address them upfront it won’t trickle to them. THICK AGAIN! Many of these bans will have a wide umbrella that the extremist will hide under the hem of that skirt to get what they want.
